THE young girls of Dilkusha Girls home in Nausori were given a first hand experience of a true mother's love when seven lady contestants of the Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival visited them.
The 28 girls at the home ranging from one year to 24 years of age were able to share their experiences and talk with the lady contestants on their individual experiences on Saturday.
Vodafone Hibiscus Festival visit co-ordinator Naomi Nawaitoga said the women felt that with their experience as mothers, it would be good to spend some time with the girls of Dilkusha.
"As mothers they will understand what the children are missing out on and they are just here to tender all their love and care for the children," Ms Nawaitoa said. "Other activities that we will do today include cleaning, helping out with the children, motivating them and also entertaining them."
Dilkusha Girls Home Deaconess Leba Laveti said the mothering instincts of the ladies would not be lost in the girls of the home.
"Mainly because they are mothers they will be able to sit with them and relate their experiences and communicate with them," she said.
"It is also good to know that they are not forgotten by the Hibiscus Festival and for some of them it will be the first time to experience being around a mother figure," she said.
